Makeup Tutorial | Bronzer and Blush Eyes

One of my favorite parts of beauty blogging is coming across and trying new looks that I wouldn't otherwise think to try out. It really takes you out of your comfort zone but it's always fun to see what works for you. I'm totally looking at you, cat-eye liner.



I recently watched a video where the girl used bronzer and blush to create a total eye look and thought, "SO genius!" So naturally I had to try it out.



Unfortunately, I don't know the girl's name but she explained everything SO perfectly. All the products she used are drugstore so if you don't have a bronzer, blush or highlighter at hand, she has awesome choices that won't break the bank! Also, I don't know about you guys, but sometimes when I watch a makeup tutorial video, I have to pause and rewind a million times to catch up or re-watch something but with this one I didn't have to so YAY!

And here's my take on it!
(Crease: NARS Laguna | Lid: Deep Throat | Outer Lid: Goulue | Inner Corner: Devotee)

To be honest, I wasn't so sure how blush would look as an eyeshadow but surprisingly, it worked fabulously! I was afraid it'd give me the "red eye" look but instead I got this total "summer girl" vibe. Love it! It was basically like using a pink eyeshadow but a bit more sheer. I definitely recommend using a white base to really make these blushes pop.

What beauty products do you use in different ways? Would you try this look?

  2. Love this!!! I have used a eyeshadow like Shroom or All that Glitters by MAC as a highlighter in a pinch. But never have thought to swap with a blush to a eye shadow. Great idea!!

  10. I love using blush as eye shadow or bronzer as nice eye shadow contour shades. It's not always the case, but I do enjoy when I can double up on a product so I can use it more. ;) YOu look fabulous.

  13. I love using my blushes or bronzers for more than what they were attending. Makeup versatility.

  14. I often use eye shadows as eyeliners, and also brow powders as eyeshadows and liners. And of course the classic lipstick as blush variation :)

  15. I use my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette as eyeshadow for a very pretty lit from within natural look. I will also use lippies as a blush when I am in a pinch or have to condense my kit.

  18. Pretty! I am always scared stuff like that isn't eye safe so I get all obsessive about reading ingredients haha

  19. Beautiful! I've done this before. Went on a trip last minute and forgot my eye stuff, but had like 4 blush palettes lol

  20. I remember being told NEVER to use blush as an eyeshadow, which I blindly accepted when I was a kid, but seems silly now - they're all just pigments, and as long as the product is approved for use near the eye, go for it! I think the rationale then was that eyeshadows and blushes had different textures, but now you have matte or shimmer blushes, and matte or shimmer shadows. I also (gasp) use my lipstick on my cheeks for a quick blush sometimes!

  21. I use bronzer and blush (mauve shade) as eyeshadows once in a while.

  22. If I pop a little of my blush color on the brow bone, it really ties the look together. Sometimes I like a little bronzer in the crease.

  23. This look so pretty on you! Certain pinks make me look like I'm sick, but I'd definitely try it with a bronzer. I've used cheek highlighters before on my eyes but for some reason I don't think I've ever gone for a blush lol

  24. I love this palette! I want to steal it from you : )

  25. I'm guilty of using blush as eyeshadow all the time. I know you need to be careful because not all of them are safe for use on the eyes but i figure until I burn my eyeball I'll keep doing it.
